Kamuthi Solar Power Project is a solar photovoltaic power generating station at Kamuthi, 90 km from Madurai, in the state of Tamil Nadu, India. This project has been commissioned by Adani Power.

With a generating capacity of 648 MW at a single location, it is billed as the world's largest single location solar project. The project was completed on 21 September 2016 with an investment of around ₹ 4,550 crores.

The solar plant consists of 2,500,000 solar modules and 27,000 metres of structures. It consists of 576 inverters and 154 transformers and almost 7500 km of cables.

The solar power plant contains 25 lakh individual solar panels. These panels are cleaned on a daily basis by a robotic system, which is in turn charged by solar power, thereby making it a self-sustaining system.
